Man City preparing bid for Southampton whizkid Ward-Prowse

Manchester City are chasing Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse for the summer market. The People says he is a shock £20million summer transfer target for Manchester City.

The 20-year-old Southampton midfielder is on City's radar despite signing a five-year deal on £20,000 a week in January.

Southampton boss Ronald Koeman insists Academy graduate Ward-Prowse has a big part to play at St Mary's but the new contract was also designed to ward off interest from bigger clubs.

Manchester United are known to have scouted him, Liverpool also maintain a keen interest, while Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino - who managed the player when he was in charge on the south coast - is desperate to sign him.
